    Jab Tak Hai Jaan
    Cast – Shahrukh Khan , Katrina Kaif , Anushka Sharma.
    Direction- Yash Chopra .
    Producer – Aditya Chopra .
    Music – A R Rahman

    The man Who taught the Country How to Romance – Late Shri Yash Chopra couldn’t Witness its release but the Movie has created its Magic all Over the World and Its just Considered as another Master Piece by Yashji . Yash chopra – Shahrukh Khan Duo Magic has once again proved to be victorious at Box Office.
    There is no surprising dimension or nuance to the love story, which involves a struggling young Londoner, an odd-jobs man who can charm the pants off people with his broken English, and who, due to a preposterous twist of fate, becomes an expert in the bomb defusal squad of the Indian Army (Samar Anand, played by Khan). Meera (Katrina Kaif), a wealthy object of affection with a traumatic childhood, is regressive and unable to take her life in her own hands. The third in the triangle is a 21-year-old documentary film-maker who is wooing the Discovery Channel head honchos with a film on the lover boy who is now the soldier with a tough exterior (Akira, played by Anushka Sharma). Wish fulfilment, really, but not in this film.
    There is a crucial hole in the basic template, which Chopra made his own in his long career—poetic, rhapsodic music that beautifies his scenes, even his characters. Rahman’s music dilly-dallies along the formulaic and the original; there are flashes of genius in the way he uses voice, but overall the music is remarkably ineffective. Mehta’s cinematography—the way he and the director use the locations, London and Ladakh—has the stamp of a seasoned hand. Some of the dialogues are memorable.
    Towards the end, when the plot is very obviously done with its meandering and things head towards a climax, an insufferable number of scenes go into bizarre lovers’ exchanges. Fervent sighs and tears encumber these lengthy scenes. Khan’s histrionics become tiresome and his familiar weaknesses as an actor are pronounced, overshadowing the spunk and magnetism his persona lends to the role—his reputation as a romantic hero, firmly and unmistakably in a tradition which Dilip Kumar and Dev Anand steered, is intact.
    AR Rahman’s music in the film somewhere seems underused. The songs ‘Challa’, ‘Ishq Shava’ and ‘Saans Mein’ are a delight to the ears. The Master Musician’s ‘Heer’ is a beautiful song. The numbers are hummable, and nice ones; but just that. They aren’t exactly exceptional. We’ve had better specimens from Rahman in the past, and will sure have better ones in the future.
    Overall you can Witness One of the Most beautiful Movies of 2012 with Shahrukh Khan’s Magic as he still hold’s the Tag of King of Hearts with Jab Tak Hai Jaan .

    Absolutely do not get what he is talking about. I think sometimes these guys just repeat something meaningless over and over...
